Peter Obi's comments

It is not funny how some people didn't see how Peter Obi's comments subtly presented IPOB as kidnappers and kîllers. Obi was asked a very simple question, which he ought to have answered with only 'I will dialogue with them', but Obi continue talking about kidnap and kîlling.

IPOB is a nonviolent agitators that have maintained their mandate. Recently, the government have tried blackmailing IPOB, but it was proven that all they accused IPOB of committing were actually not committed by IPOB. The proves are there. It was all a dub-ious blackmail. Remember the beheading of the lawmaker? The kidnap of the Methodist Prelate and the kîlling of the Army couple? They were all a ploy to blackmail IPOB.

So it is somehow to ask someone about IPOB and he began with kidnapping and kîlling and you say you don't see anything wrong with that. The funniest part of it is that some are even saying he was diplomatic. And I ask, he was diplomatic about what exactly? Do you actually understand the meaning of diplomacy? That is 'the art of dealing with people in a sensitive and tactful way.' So in a sensitive issue like IPOB, Obi started with kidnapping and kîlling and you called it diplomacy? I really don't understand some people.

Obi supporters have been claiming radicals that don't care recently, yet they have never seen radicality. Advice them they attack, speak cool they turn it to war. You all might be his greatest undoing if care is not taken.

I rest my case.
